A message from the founder of the Iverson Foundation for Active Awareness:
"Trauma is not unique to the human race; some experience it more than others depending on the individual. First responders however, are a unique group that witness trauma nearly everyday for the entirety of their career. The hope is to raise awareness that there is an epidemic of struggling mental health within the first responder community. There is an existing stigma that dehumanizes first responders leading them to believe that if they are unable to compartmentalize the traumas experienced within and outside of the job then they are unfit to be a public servent. Alcoholism, divorce and suicide are plaguing the first responder community because they are ill equipped with mental health practices in order to decompress from the job and normal life stressors. It is crucial that behavioral health is normalized and the emphasis on and implementation of mental health modalities are proactively practiced within the first responder community in order to save our heroes lives."
